After some deep thought and conversation, Auntie Viv’s has decided to go on hiatus after 12/31/20 until further notice.

Due to the current pandemic, we are no longer able to sustain the business as before.

We are truly touched and blessed by all the support we have received from our Ohana Fans over the past 3 years.

We hope to be back by 2022.

Due to the overwhelming response to the news of our closing, we have received as many orders as we can handle at this time. We are closing the ordering window.

If we are able to take additional orders, we will post it on here. Please check back in a couple weeks.

Mahalo nui loa for all of your support of our small business!

Aloha for now,
Auntie Viv

About Us

Brandt Family on Haleakala

Auntie Viv’s Shave Ice is a woman-owned, family run business where everyone is welcomed and treated like ohana (family)!

Vivian, her husband Bill and their two young keiki’s, daughters Chloe and Ella, visited Maui for the first time in 2017. Vivian fell in love at “first taste” with her very first Hawaiian shave ice. How she describes this phenomenon: “It literally was like a deliciously flavored, puffy cloud that instantly melted in my mouth and tasted like liquid gold.” Vivian says, “It was the best epicurean experience ever.”

Upon returning to the mainland, Vivian had her sights set on opening her own shave ice business. Vivian didn’t want to serve the typical crunchy, icy, sno-cone, with gross high fructose corn syrups and artificially flavored/colored syrups. Auntie Viv’s prides itself in their handcrafted syrups that are made with real, natural, ingredients and 100% pure cane sugar.

Shortly after starting the business, Vivian added in her now famous Auntie Viv’s Artisan Furikake Snack Mix.

The Press

  •   SUMMARY: Met Vivian, the sweetest lady you'll ever meet at a pop up show outside of Cali Craft a few weekends back. We got her Furikake Cracker Mix. So delicious!

    FURIKAKE CRACKER MIX (5/5)
    I'm probably spelling it incorrectly but it's a type of fried, seasoned topping for rice. Viv uses it to season Japanese style rice cracker mix. Holy goodness, this stuff was attic five. I tried not to sample it at her stand, but her charming personality convinced me like a Jedi mind trick.

    Sorry no pics of the packaging or the crackers, but trust me it was pretty darn good. Highly recommend you at least sample, but gotta warn you that you'll buy a bag or two!

  •   I had Auntie Viv's at my brother's birthday party, and it was absolutely AMAZING!! This is the real deal, legit Hawaiian shaved ice, not snow cone stuff you get at other places. I absolutely loved that the syrups, which are naturally flavored and not "over the top" sugar sweetened syrup. The homemade mochi was delicious!!! I loved that the whole family is involved and they enjoy what they do. Service with a smile, even in 90+degree weather  Mahalo!!

  •   My first time trying this at a birthday party and was NOT disappointed! Reminds me of local shave ice back at home in Hawaii! Ono flavors and mochi, red bean, and ice cream was awesome!!

  •   If you ever see Auntie Viv's Shave Ice booth, run, don't walk to get the best shaved ice in town! Seriously! The ice is delicate and melts in your mouth (you won't get any crunchy ice). Her syrups are all made from scratch and so delicious! If there is a long line, it's worth the wait! You won't be disappointed and the proportions are huge!
